Children and skiing holidays are a magical combination.
There’s nothing quite like a skiing holiday with all the extras added in so you can make the most of what the mountains offer at the same time as relaxing and having fun.
Before you arrive:
Our dedicated concierge team will help you organise everything from childcare, ski school, equipment hire and any extras you might need – we can supply cots, high chairs, baby monitors, non-slip bath mats and a whole host of other equipment. We will also ensure your chef for the week (if you are booked in to a catered chalet) calls you to discuss the children’s food preferences for the week – we know how important it is for children to be well nourished but also given some treats too, it’s a holiday for everyone! Our team are on hand to answer any questions about our chalets, which rooms are better for children, the facilities available and how logistics work with children, please do ask at any point during the enquiry or pre-holiday process.
The Fish&Pips essentials are:
The Kit. We have all the necessary bits and bobs from cots to highchairs, soft toys to sledges, sterilisers and lots more. To save you lugging everything from home, just give us a call beforehand, and we will buy nappies, wipes and anything you need. When you book, we’ll give you a comprehensive check list, so we don’t miss a thing!
The Extras. Being Méribel specialists, we have in-depth knowledge of children friendly activities in the resort, the most suitable restaurants, and most importantly, the best places to ski.
Children’s Tea. Your chef will call you before you arrive to talk through any dietary requirements, likes and dislikes, so you’re safe in the knowledge that everyone will be happy and well-fed. So don’t forget to mention any particular favourites. All our children’s meals are freshly cooked, healthy and nutritious. Our chef team are particularly good at involving children in meal times, expect build you own pizza nights, ice cream sundaes and all sorts. If there’s a birthday in your group, please let us know and we’ll be sure to have cake and candles at the ready. Have a peek at our children’s tea menu (subject to change).
Childcare. We can organise babysitting and other childcare services with certified nanny companies for all our chalets (catered, serviced and self-catered) and our hotels. We also partner with a fantastic local childcare service (https://meribelnannyservices.com/) who have qualified nannies to look after children of all ages taking the stress out of ski school pick ups, entertaining children in resort and bad weather day activities.
Ski School. We provide a shuttle service in our 8-seater minibus in Méribel Village to ensure children make early morning ski school with as little hassle as possible. We also pack them off with tissues, SPF lip balm and a small chocolate bar to help them through the day. We work with four of the best ski schools in the Three Valleys, all of which have a particular speciality, so just ask our office team and they’ll point you in the right direction.
Discount. We offer a 10% discount off the quoted price per person for children under 12 in their own rooms. For infants in cots in their parents’ room there is a surcharge of £150.
Fun. At Fish&Pips making sure the children have as much fun as the adults is just as important! We take great care in ensuring this by going the extra mile, from decorating Christmas trees to Easter egg hunts and bum-boarding.
